Sam Yahel

I guess he's mostly an organ guy, but I'm digging into Sam Yahel's new disc 'Hometown' - a piano trio - and am thoroughly enjoying it.

The very first cut, Lennon's "Jealous Guy," is great jazz, which I think is hard to pull off with tunes from the rock era. He does that cool teasing-all-the-possibilities-out-of-the-song thing without losing sight of its virtues.

Anyone else listening to this?

Re: Sam Yahel

He's pretty brilliant. In clubs, I've heard him play both organ and piano. He sounds closer to Brad Mehldau on the acoustic instrument.
